B.L.A.S.T. is our mid-week club for kids in grades 1-6. Kids can arrive anytime beginning at 6:15pm.


After checking in on the third floor, kids go to the GPS room where they recite a verse they've learned as they work through their GPS mileposts. Then they''re off to the Filling Station where they can purchase snacks, enjoy various kinds of games and have a good time hanging out with their friends. At 7pm the entire group becomes the Kids Place Singers and rehearse to present two musicals each year. At around 7:45 kids can go to the craft shop or to the gym for fast-paced games. Then everyone returns for a short kid-friendly Bible study before it all ends at 8:30pm. (Note that kids whose parents or teen siblings are involved in an activity on the Cherrydale campus can stay until 9:00pm.)




Koala Club is our mid-week program for children who are at least four years old by their first day at club, and have never been in first grade in school.


It meets each Wednesday evening on the third floor at Cherrydale from 7:00-8:00pm. Children can arrive beginning at 6:30pm and must be picked up no later than 8:30pm.

The evening includes age-appropriate Bible memory, kid-friendly Bible study, motion activities, and lots of fun.


Kids love Sundays at The Kids Place.

You'll check in your kids at one of the kiosks in The Commons. If it's your first Sunday, arrive a little early to get your child registered and assigned to a class. All kids receive a stick-on name tag. Parents receive a printed ID that is required to pick up children in grades 2 and under.


Grades 1-6 attend a graded Sunday class during the 9:15am service. Then during the 11:00 service, first and second graders are a part of "The Bus Stop," a kids worship program kids really love as they study through the Bible. Grades 3-6 attend Kids Church where Pastor Herb Owen and his team lead a kid-friendly worship service that kids love.


There are classes for preschoolers and kindergarten kids during both hours, as well as nurseries for infants through three year-olds. The nursery is just off The Commons, while 4 year-olds through sixth graders meet on the third floor.


For adults and teens, there are identical worship services during both hours.   Seventh through twelfth graders will want to be a part of our Student Ministry that meets at 11am (as well as Wednesday evenings.) For parents, there are a variety of Sunday classes and electives


You're at

The Kids Place!


This is the place for kids through grade 6 and their friends (with information for parents of kids of all ages.) Look around and see what's going on. No matter who you are, where you live, or what church you attend (or even if you don't have a church), you're invited to enjoy what's here and come to anything we announce.

It's all centered around the campus of Cherrydale Baptist Church in Arlington on Lorcom Lane at Military Road. We are minutes from Ballston, Clarendon, Georgetown, and the National Mall.

We hope to see you soon.


For all the Kids Place Staff,
